As we continue to keep social distance, we’ve got a full slate of events, voter assistance, volunteer opportunities, and more online. Please join us and invite a friend to join a virtual event!

Democrats Abroad advocates for tax fairness for Americans abroad, but can’t provide individual tax advice. It’s a common concern, so we’re happy that Monique Luegger, EA, (a member and volunteer) is offering her expertise in an online Info Session: U.S. Taxes While Living Abroad for our members tomorrow on May 13, 2020.

You’ll learn more about what you need to do as an American citizen or permanent resident living abroad. To support our voter outreach, we ask that each attendee contribute by making 20 phone calls in our current phone campaign, or a donating 10€. There are a few spots left!

Office hours with the Berlin chapter chair are continuing this month. You can connect with Diego Rivas and get voting support on the video call on on Wednesday, May 20, 2020 from 6-6:45pm. ►RSVP for May Office Hours

Phone banking is an extremely important tool for Democrats Abroad to reach voters abroad and help them request absentee ballots. In 2020, we’re relying on phone banking even more than usual, due to the constraints on in-person outreach. For the Global Presidential Primary, 61 phone bankers in Germany made over 3500 calls, leading to the 2nd highest turnout in Democrats Abroad!

Scroll down to find out how you can be part of this outreach — through calling and financial support.

We’re looking forward to seeing you on the internet. Take care of each other!


Support Phone Banking: Calling & Donating

You can sign up to phonebank! It’s a simple task you can do from the comforts of your own home (perfect social distancing option). Volunteers report friendly & enjoyable interactions with our members. Training sessions below.

The tool for making calls (CallHub) is really easy to use, but also an expense for Democrats Abroad. Please consider donating to support phone banking. Every little bit helps, and goes a long way: $10 covers a volunteer calling 40 voters! With your help, we can ensure Democrats succeed up and down the ballot in November. ►Donate to the Call the World ?campaign

Postcard Coloring Campaign

Get out the vote with personally colored postcards. We’re targeting voters living abroad who vote in key battleground states. Request 10 or more postcards, color them, write a short message, and send them back to us within 3 weeks. We’ll address, stamp, and send them on to potential voters. ► Join the postcard campaign ?

Attend EMEA Regional Convention

This Saturday, Democrats Abroad electors in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa region will meet virtually to elect one of Democrats Abroad’s DNC members (through 2024), 3 Democratic National Convention delegates for Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders each, and platform committee members. U.S. citizens and especially members of Democrats Abroad are very welcome to observe the proceedings! ►Find out more
